I Like I Hope I Am

‘I Like I Hope I Am’ is a show we made with the ‘Voices of Hope Choir’, a project run by Olympias Music Foundation to provide a creative outlet and community for diverse women from the local community. Over several months between September and December 2021, we attended weekly choir rehearsals, and worked with choir director Anna McLuckie and the choristers to find a story and a theme to run through the show we staged at 422 Community Hub, Longsight on December 11th. We set the words of several choir members to music, and ran days where we painted together– those paintings became the sculptural suspended set that was the backdrop for the show.

We plan to reprise 'I Like I Hope I Am' in 2022.
